Centro Asturiano de Tampa Membership Records Photograph Collection

Browse collection

El Centro Asturiano is one of Tampa's early Spanish social clubs. The club, founded in 1902, catered to Latin males, most of whom were immigrant workers in Ybor City's cigar factories. Members paid a monthly fee for health insurance, use of club facilities, and guaranteed burial. This is a collection of membership record portrait snapshots.
